Ever since DLNA support was added to the PLAYSTATION 3 in firmware 1.80, I have been streaming all sorts of media to my living room and HDTV in a configuration similar to this:
Early on, I transcoded my Top Gear and American Dad episodes from my PC via TVersity since a majority of my content was encoded in DivX/XviD format (incompatible with the PS3 at the time). While the solution worked, it had some inconvenient setbacks:
- Computer(s) must be on in order to view/access all media.
- Image quality suffered due to transcoding.
- TVersity service needed to be restarted in order to become visible to the PS3.
